The package includes a limited-edition golden colorway of Nixon’s The Heat, a Nixon tri-strap Bandit chest bag and HyperIce’s HyperVolt massage gun along with a host of other goodies.
In total, 500 individually numbered pieces of the The Heat: Team Edition were made, with the remaining 300 now available to buy. The watch is water resistant to 100m and, at just 8mm thick, is the world’s thinnest digital sports watch.
Nixon were inspired to make up the 200 travel kits because of skateboarding and surfing’s inclusion as Olympic sports at Tokyo 2020, which are two of Nixon’s core sports. Athletes including skateboarding Zion Wright, footballer Megan Rapinoe, Basketballer Sue Bird and surfer John John Florence will receive the set.
The Heat: Team Edition is available now via Nixon, priced $200 USD.
